Jimmy quickly comes up with an alias, Conan Edogawa (江戸川 コナン, Edogawa Conan?) , after Arthur Conan Doyle and Edogawa Rampo. Dr. Agasa tells her that he is a distant relative whose parents were in an accident overseas and that it may be better if he stays with her, since he doesn't know much about taking care of kids. "Conan" then goes to live with Rachel and her father, Richard Moore (Kogoro Mouri), a private detective, and hopes that by living with a detective, he can stay on top of current cases and be able to gather clues about the "Black Organization". Unfortunately, Detective Moore is so incompetent that Jimmy usually has to solve the mysteries for him. Jimmy frequently knocks out Richard with a watch that shoots mini tranquilizer darts and uses his voice-changing bow tie to imitate Richard's voice. (These gadgets were made by Dr. Agasa for him, and he later amasses many more gadgets that help him out.) Because of this, Richard gets all the credit and quickly becomes famous for his incredible deductions. Cases also begin to pile up, which occasionally gives Jimmy a chance to gather hints on the Black Organization.
